Day 17 of our 21 Days of Gratitude is focused on being thankful for Troubles we don’t have. Many of us are either a) dwelling in the past or b) dreaming of your future. Taking action to live in the present requires a spirit of thankfulness or appreciation. When you take the time to observe your surroundings, you come to the realization that there will always be someone that has less as it relates to finances, health, relationships and/or careers. Opportunities and chances happen to all, however it is up to you to seize the day, own your own life and demonstrate thankfulness.
